Today in Family History - 10 Feb

A busy but all-around happy day in family history.

My 3rd great-grandmother Stijntje van Zanten (Thompson line) was born on this day in 1831 in Uithuizen, Groningen, The Netherlands [1].

My 3rd great-grandparents Benjamin Franklin Baldwin, Sr. and Magdellen Moseley Guerrant were married on this day in 1859 [2]. Franklin and Maggie were likely married in Limestone County as they were living on the Limestone-Leon county line one year later in the 1860 census. A marriage license has not been found. Since the Leon and Walker County marriage records are seemingly complete and the Limestone records only date to the 1870's because of a courthouse fire in 1873, it can be presumed they were married in Limestone County and the license was destroyed in the fire.

My 7th great-grandparents Jacob Kievit and Maddeleentje Wafelbakker (Thompson line) were married on this day in 1735 in The Netherlands [3].
